What baffled me is that Steven Jackson was still sitting there and the Bengals chose Chris Perry. Even at the time, I was screaming for Jackson. How good would the Bengals have been the last few years with Jackson at tailback? I'd have to question anyone who thought Perry was a better pick than Jackson.
It seemed that the logic at the time was that Perry would be a receiving HB, or converted to WR.
Regardless, neither have happened, and it was a lousy pick.
